in charge of world affairs? >> i like chuck hagel. i served with him in the united states senate, but he's the wrong man for this job. >> gretchen: why? >> well, his positions on everhing from a nuclear iran to direct negotiations with state department designated terrorist organizations like hamas, his embrace of these naive ideas like a nuclear free world, which, you know, is fine to say i hope and i wish and i pray that it would be that way burks it's not realistic and it's naive, particularly among the person who is supposed to represent american national security and keep the peace. and i worry that president obama has picked senator hagel because really the defense department is the only part of the government that he seems to be willing to cut. he's not really interested in reining in spending in almost any other area except national security. he said the sequester, which is the $1.2 trillion in cuts that are scheduled to go in effect, which disproportion athlete affect defense spending, the president said during the campaign, ain't going to happen of the well, it's going to happen
